Library & Learning Center
The Library and Learning Center is located in building 100 on the main campus across from the main academic building. The college's undergraduate and law library are major learning centers not only for students and faculty but also for alumni and the community. The undergraduate library supports the college's curricula in liberal arts, accounting, business, community affairs, early childhood education, computers, office administration, court reporting, and paralegal studies.
The law library houses collections of federal and California codes, California and regional reporters, California administrative regulations, attorney general opinions, law journals and treatises. In addition, the College provides students and faculty access to popular national online research database services.*
* While on campus, use the "Research Databases" submenu under the "Library Menu" to directly access the research database services. Off campus users will be prompted to enter a username and password – available from the library – before research can take place; once entered, available research options and functionality remains the same as on campus.

Use of Materials
Humphreys College Library is using the open stack system — the best method known for saving patrons' time in their library searches. Generally, patrons may sign out books for two-week periods with the privilege of renewal unless the book is requested by another patron. Certain materials, including reference books, current textbooks, magazines, and videotapes, are for use in the library only.
